Waterlily purchased for convalescing sister.
Regular camera, no editing.
Like the waterlily, Robyn’s health has bloomed after her stroke.
She has worked so hard as have her specialists, and is able to walk and talk (with frustration :) ) and has learnt to do so much with her left hand. (No skiing for her anymore.) Who knew you could hang out washing with your teeth!
The waterlily I guess signifies this for me – the growth , the new beginning. A new lifestyle from what was, the hope for the future, the change in the world. While she will possibly never be the sister, teacher, mother she was, this change has created growth in those around her, her four children, and a sense of continuity (life goes on) , her determination, her hope and strength is an example to all around her. She can accept help – which wasn’t easy in the past – she was a helper not one who needed it! She is such an example to me.
